Shun Classic 6" Utility Knife


Name for its versatility in the kitchen, the utility knife is one of three knives that's a must to own, next to the chef's knife and paring knife. The Shun Classic 6" Utility Knife can give you precise cuts when needed like on vegetables, yet still slice fruits, cheeses, and smaller meats. Sometimes called a sandwich knife, this blade works wonders for those who find the chef's and santoku knives a bit to large and heavy to work with. The Shun Classic Series features a ultra-sharp, 16° double-bevel blade which has zero trouble cutting its way through prey. Handcrafted in Japan. Lifetime Warranty. Shun item number DM0701.

Shun Technology Highlights

  • VG-10 stainless steel: Adds cobalt for strength and hardness, vanadium for superior edge retention.  The higher density allows the steel to be tempered to a higher Rockwell (60-62). Requires minimal care to avoid corrosion. Razor-sharp blade and phenomenal edge retention.

  • 16° Angle: Blade is sharpened to 16°. Ensures food is cut properly and precisely; no torn or bruised food so ingredients retain the same flavor and freshness.

  • PakkaWood® Handles: Resin-impregnated natural hardwood; waterproof, durable, comfortable; won't harbor bacteria.

Shun Classic Series Features

Shun's Classic Series offers the widest assortment of traditional Japanese and European blade shapes and contemporary designs. At first glance, you'll notice instantly the beautiful waved pattern on the blade which resembles a combination of tree-rings and ripples in water. This form of Kasumi-style knife making similar to pattern Damascus, or in Japanese suminigashi ("�ink pattern"�), is not only visually appealing but actually allows the blade to slide through food easier. This variation of pattern Damascus is formed by folding, welding, grinding, and polishing 32 layers (16 per side) of softer steel (SUS410/SUS431) that protect and support the VG-10 stainless steel core. The D-shaped ebony PakkaWood
® handle fits perfectly in the hand and stabilizes the blade to prevent turning.

About Shun

Shun in Japanese actually translates to "�at the peak of perfection,"� and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of "�Shoon"�) have been making blades of the highest quality in homage of the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
